About This Project

Georgia State University and Emory University developed this digital exhibition based on the content and design of 2017-18 exhibition EBOLA: People + Public Health + Political Will. Organized by the David J. Sencer CDC Museum, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia, the exhibition investigated the history of the 2014-16 Ebola epidemic in West Africa and the United States through photography, objects, documents, videos, and oral history. This content has been adapted and expanded for a digital platform.

By design, the project is evolving and ongoing: new content will be added as it is developed and identified. In addition, GSU and Emory plan to develop lesson plans and curriculum related to the exhibition content, which will be shared on the website. Faculty from other educational institutions are welcomed to request more information about curriculum and contributing to the pedagogical aspect of the project using our contact form.
